The world of youth soccer is like an extended family. There are lots of links and lots of connnections and there is always the common experience. I could tell you all the ways this young man's story tugs my heartstrings, but I'd rather just ask you to pray for Ian Stowe, a recent graduate and soccer alumnus of William and Mary. He's been working here in the DC area since graduation and learned on Monday that he is suffering a significant tumor located on his brain stem.
Please storm heaven for Ian.
